Loved all your beautiful posts you linked up! Thank you much for taking the time to be connected to All Seasons. Much appreciated!
More or less gotten used to this New Year?
My only plan is for a viewing at my studio with young college grads at the end of this month. I decided that, since on New Year’s Day I had some guests at my house. Among them were two (around 20-year old) artists. It was such fun to hear their reactions and their views.
Finally realized that in this area people do not only need a general invitation (as I did in the city), but a specific date to come, before they feel okay to take me up on the invite. I never stop learning:)
You may or may not know California has officially a desert climate. Coming from a North West European country I thought a desert was what one would avoid, because of the lack of water and the searing temperatures. Besides, I thought it was ugly and dangerous.
Now, I have only been to the Southern California and Utah desert, but they both proved me wrong on all counts. Greenery and smooth appearances are only one kind of beauty. There are flowers, next to thistles, regrettably the flowers are scarce and short lived because of the heat.
Doesn’t this look like the Sahara desert in Africa?
Would you be surprised it is in the desert of Southern California?
In the spring these hills are green!
How about a lizzard?
Very common to live around people’s yards in Southern California. I knew
vaguely one was seen in the front yard,
but when I saw it on my stove top,
I was certain!
We had “open concept” before that term was coined,
and had visions of this critter finding a hiding place somewhere in our house.
So, when it didn’t want to move, I called in the rescue squad (hubby:):))
to trap it to bring it outside.
A very different kind of desert than the one above in Utah.
They have the harsh conditions in common though.
Could not believe what I saw – pine cone?
Have you been to a desert?
